In this video, I show you how I use Dropbox and how it helps me in my freelancing work.
In the previous post, I discussed why data security is a crucial part of a freelancers’ work management, and the three types of data security we need to have: backup; archiving; and, synchronization.
In this post, I’ll discuss the two main options we have when it comes to data storage: physical and online storage, their pros and cons, and which one we really need.
This past week, I have been very busy researching this very technical computer geek topic – data security. I have spent dozens of hours poring over websites, forums, and blogs. And I have used (abused?) my credit card a few times to try various options.
Then it dawned on me that nobody had ever told me about this stuff (or at least not completely) – not in the 1 1/2 years that I have been freelancing and doing Internet marketing, and STUDYING ABOUT freelancing and Internet marketing. But this is very important stuff.
So I think that a post – or better yet a series of posts – on data security would be my contribution to the freelancing community.
